San Francisco officials Wednesday announced that memorial events for Mayor Ed Lee, who died suddenly early Tuesday morning of an apparent heart attack, will be held at the City Hall rotunda Friday, December 15 and Sunday, December 17

Lee, who was 65, will lie in state from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, there will be a celebration of his life.

Lee had served as mayor since 2011. Board of Supervisors President London Breed was sworn in as acting mayor immediately after Lee’s death at 1:11 a.m. Tuesday at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.

Many regarded Lee as a champion of LGBTQ rights, especially for his consistent efforts to push for full HIV/AIDS funding in the city.
